Khloe Kardashian’s latest book pick goes back to her Armenian roots

On her official app, Khloe Kardashian gives fans an inside look into every facet of her world — even her nightstand. These days, the Kocktails with Khloe host, 31, is adding nonfiction to her growing pile of books, including Dawn Anahid MacKeen’s The Hundred-Year Walk: An Armenian Odyssey. “[It’s] a firsthand account of an Armenian man’s escape from war,” Kardashian writes. “Stepan Miskjian’s granddaughter wrote this book using his journals to guide her,” the US Weekly reports.

The 100 year walk

Investigative journalist MacKeen shares her grandfather’s harrowing flight from a forced march through the Syrian desert during the Armenian genocide as well as her own experience retracing his steps 92 years later.

Last April, Kardashian marked the 100th anniversary of the beginning of the Armenian genocide by visiting the national memorial with her sister, Kim, and their cousins. The family placed flowers on the site which commemorates the 1.5 million Armenian people who were eliminated from their historic homeland in Turkey through massacres between 1915 and 1923.

“Knowledge is power! If we know better than hopefully we shall do better,” Khloe wrote on Instagram after the visit in her ancestral homeland. “Genocides, massacres, human slaughter… are despicable acts!! Educating people as to what happened in history is our duty. It is also our duty to not be silent whenever and wherever human beings endure suffering and humiliation no matter their race or creed.”
